We stayed at Pool Head Cottage for a cosy winter break and it was perfect. The host couldn't have made us more welcome, and the cottage is beautiful and contains everything you'll need for meals etc. Everything was spotless and the whole house felt fresh and clean. The log stove was an especially nice treat to come back to in the evening.

Now we understand why we could not get a booking as it is always booked so far in advance because it is a large but cosy cottage in delightful surroundings. Thank you for a wonderful hamper, so welcome after a long drive. We highly recommend The Three Choirs Winery for the wine and it has a very good restaurant.

A fantastic weekend with great weather and beautiful sunsets! After a very wet and muddy winter it was great to do some mud free walking. Thank you for a lovely cottage to stay in. JT, Cornwall

Another lovely stay at our third visit to Pool Head Cottage. A really relaxing break with most of the three days spent in the beautiful cottage. Did venture out for a walk around the estate and an evening meal at the Green Man, which we would recommend. Back for our fourth visit again soon we're sure. IO, Cheshire

A perfect Rural Retreat in which to escape the unsettled weather and to recharge our batteries. What better way is there than to spend an afternoon with a good book, log fire and a meal cooking in the Aga. Thank you for letting us enjoy this experience. A beautiful cottage and nearby woods. We return home fully rested with wonderful memories. MF, Hampshire

Our 21st Rural Retreats property and also a very first time in Herefordshire. The cottage is perfect with huge attention to detail and comfort. The beds and pills are great, such good sleep for us both. Weather has been kind; we had a fantastic day exploring Hay on Wye and had a stunning week on Hay Bluff. We hope to return. Thank you.

A lovely weekend break to celebrate a birthday. The comfortable cottage enabled us to relax and enjoy spending time together. Weather was mixed but did not detract us from having a great time. Enjoyed returning to Ludlow and Hereford. Thank you for the welcome pack, birthday card and fresh flowers. We would love to return one day. P&C, Staffordshire

What a wonderful place to have our family reunion. The setting is perfect, the cottage so cosy and welcoming. The weather was ok as we had a warm fire to come back to. Thanks for all the lovely welcoming touches that made such a difference. We had a fantastic few days. Thank you! P&I, Cardiff

A fabulous find! We all love it here and wish we could stay longer. The house is beautiful, extremely well equipped. The little ones loved the downstairs den. We will definitely be back. M&C, Hampshire

What a fantastic week we've had from the brilliant hamper full of Christmas treats, to the perfectly decorated house and the added, and wonderful bonus of the Christmas Eve Carol singers which enthralled us and our grandson. Pool Head is a delight we only wish we could have stayed another week to explore the estate. We'll be back. Thank you. ML, Staffordshire

One of our favourite cottages - had a wonderful stay even the rain didn't matter. The owner couldn't have been more accommodating and helpful. The kids want to move here. CC, London

We have had a fantastic weekend break here in Pool Head Cottage. The location is so picturesque and the cottage is beautiful. We really enjoyed long walks with our dog in the surrounding countryside and evenings by the fire in the cosy living room. The cottage is immaculate and very well appointed and ranks as the best Rural Retreats property we have been to. The aim of the weekend was relaxation and peace, and it was certainly achieved. Thank you so much for a lovely break. JD, Wales

What a lovely few days we've spent here at Pool Head. A beautiful cottage, perfectly decorated with everything we could possibly need from ramekins to shower caps. We've had a girls weekend resting, walking and laughing and eating far too much! Thanks for providing a fabulous stay for us. K&J, Gloucester

We have all had a truly wonderful stay. Fantastic location for walking. The weather was great. See you next year. HW, Cambridge

We have had a really wonderful, relaxing break in this beautiful cottage. It has been a real joy to explore the back lanes of Herefordshire and in spite of the poor weather forecast, have enjoyed some lovely sunshine. Most memorable moments have been discovering Hereford's Saxon Wall. Saxon church was beautiful and so interesting followed by a glorious walk in beautiful sunshine. All in all a fantastic week. SR, Shropshire

We have had a lovely stay here in this very comfortable property, in spite of the weather. Can recommend Hereford Cathedral, Berrington Hall 9NT), Hay on Wye and Ludlow for shopping. The Blue Boar in Hay on Wye had very good bar staff and lovely sandwiches with good chips. JB, Nottinghamshire

Another lovely visit to Pool Head. Thanks once again to the owner. The cosy home from home cottage made our three night break relaxing even with a four month old baby. We'll be back again. J&C, Cheltenham

We've had such a wonderful weekend celebrating our mum's 70th birthday. This cottage is so beautiful and we too felt instantly at home as soon as we walked through the door, and will definitely find it hard to leave tomorrow. Thank you to our hosts for creating such a restful place to stay and all the extra touches were really thoughtful, the hamper and detailed folder about the area. If we're ever in this part of the world again, we'd definitely love to stay again! SB, Guildford

It had once again been a joy and a pleasure to stay in this fantastic cottage in such a beautiful part of England. Thank you for everything you provided for us. We had an excellent evening meal at the Three Choirs. We spent two great days out, one in Hereford and one in Ludlow and along that amazing road to "Stiperstones". The Ludlow Food Centre just north of the town is well worth visiting too. NS, Surrey

An excellent week in a first class cottage. The weather could have been better, but had some good lunches in local pubs - Butchers Arms at Woolhope worth a visit. DM, Kent

A wonderful holiday in one of the best cottages we have stayed in! The hosts couldn't have done more to make us feel welcome and at home - she even supplied some of our favourites in the welcome basket - she must be psychic. We loved the walk around the estate and exploring the local area. The beds were extremely comfy and we found everything at we needed. The weather was great too which made everything perfect. Thank you again, we really hope we can come again. RC, London
